Thanks for visiting my Patreon page!  I'm Joshua Ulrich, and I'm the creator, author, co-author, and/or maintainer for many R packages for finance and trading.  I'm also on the all-volunteer organizing committee for the annual R/Finance Conference in Chicago.  I live in Saint Louis, where I founded and organize the Saint Louis R Users Group.

I started using R over 10 years ago, and I never imagined so many people would use software I helped create.  It started when I created the  TTR package as a way to collect and document technical indicators that I would use to test algorithmic trading strategies.  That connected me to Jeff Ryan, which lead to working together on xts, and connected me to the broader R/Finance community that is largely based in Chicago.

Now I maintain quantmod, TTR, xts, IBrokers, and have made contributions to quantstrat, blotter, PerformanceAnalytics, DEoptim, and zoo. Visit my GitHub page to see other projects I tinker on that you might be interested in.

Maintaining quality software takes a lot of time, and many people have thanked me in various ad-hoc ways.  I created this Patreon page as a way for anyone to show their gratitude and support.  I'm thankful you use and value something I've created, and I appreciate whatever monthly support you choose to give!
